Should security of MPs be increased?

After the tragic murder of Labour MP Jo Cox, there are calls for MPs security to be increased.

Speaking to the Daily Politics, journalist Steve Richards has said he thinks it won't happen "because it will be frankly impossible to police the scale required".

He was joined by Toby Young from The Spectator who thinks politicians are at greater risk in the US than in the UK and the fact that what happened to Jo Cox shocked the nation was because this rarely happens here in the UK.
